AFCC Conference in Orlando, Florida

On June 2, I was a speaker at the annual international conference of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC). It was held in Orlando, Florida, and my session about the “New Ways for Families” method had approximately 100 family law professionals, including judges, lawyers, counselors and court staff. 


There was a great deal of interest in this method, which helps manage potentially high-conflict parents who are preparing to fight over their children, by teaching and reinforcing basic conflict resolution skills. Particularly encouraging was the interest from judges, who are looking for new ways of managing high-conflict families. 


I also got to show off our new book BIFF: Quick Responses to High Conflict People, Their Personal Attacks, Hostile Email and Social Media Meltdowns.(See photo)


I enjoyed seeing many old friends at this conference from all over the United States and Canada. It was a real energy boost - which you need in this kind of work!
